Most non-native English speakers still read and speak English more proficiently than most Americans

It’s one thing to only speak one language but as far as I’ve seen America is the only country with millions of people who can’t even communicate effectively in the only language they speak.

Come down here and you’ll meet plenty of native speakers who couldn’t understand that post even if you read it for them

I mean when you don't speak the language and have to conduct business with that person it can be frustrating no matter how much you remember that a language barrier isn't a personality flaw. I'm sure they're frustrated too.

Nah he's kinda right. Black dudes aren't so bad but black women are by orders of magnitude the worst customers to deal with and they do it to other black people too.

My english has gotten rusty cus i don't have alot of ppl here to practice it with. Its not that i forgot how to speak in english but rather that i get tongue tied and it all comes out with a Puertorican accent. I quite hate it, i wish i could take the accent away.

white people are raised with the idea that they're a nuisance even when handing someone money

And how surprising that people who already believe someone is going to be difficult before they even reach the counter ends up having a negative interaction.
